2.11- Lake Worth

Sea Fever and Compass Rose wound up staying in Manatee Pocket a second day, while HazelAnn moved on to Peck lake, an area off the ICW about 6 miles south of St. Lucie inlet.  After Hazel Ann moved, Tom helped me move Sea Fever to their old spot- in about 6' of water and no swinging into the channel!

We left Manatee Pocket with off and on rain on Friday 2.10, headed to Lake Worth. This leg had a couple of milestones- first we cross statute mile 1000 on the ICW!, and... the day was the "day of 7 bridges'!  Yes, between St. Lucie Inlet and Lake Worth we had to go through 7 raising bridges.  Amazingly, Sea Fever and Compass Rose had very little wait time at any of them. 

PGA Bridge- had to wait a few minutes while they tried to get the gates to stop cars' crossing fixed.

We haven't decided yet, how long we will stay in Lake Worth, but it is a nice, large area and they are predicting heavy winds and rains the next few days, so this may be a good place to wait out the weather.  It is also known as the jumping-off point for many crossing to the Bahamas, where you can wait for a good 'weather window'.  We may come back here before we make the crossing next month, or may head over from a further-south point.
